Thanks for your question. It is permissible for it to be incorporated into terms of business or any other contract that a director is personally liable for fees. However it is not permissible for this to be hidden away in the small print. It has to be made plain and it also has to be accepted by the individual director rather than by the company. It appears this was not the case here and you can defend this successfully. You can look up on line the case Montgomery Litho v John Maxwell which is a similar situation to the one you refer. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited by JustAnswer for helping you today.
From what you say it was sent to you as a director and signed by you as a director. That would not impose personal liability.
It should be pointed out to you and not hidden in the paperwork.
According to the Maxwell case this isn’t enough. younsighed as a director not as an individual.
